GTA Online Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 weekend has free gold (paint)

Y'know, painting every single car in your GTA Online (opens in new tab) collection solid gold would really tie the whole garage together. Not saying you have to, just saying you could do it for free as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 event weekend.

It is kinda funny to give gold paint jobs away for free when they're supposed to represent wealth. But humorous juxtapositions aside, the event weekend running now through Sunday has plenty more to help players make the most of their new purchases from the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 update (opens in new tab).

Races will give out double GTA$ rewards - perfect for breaking in your new car. All in-race bonuses (like slipstreaming and clean laps) are worth double RP, and you'll even start all races with $1,000 in betting money. Jump into the special Event Playlist tuned specifically for new cars like the T20 and Coil Brawler for instant action.

Whether you're looking to lower your handicap, practice your backhand, or slaughter your fellow players, you'll find double RP rewards in Golf, Tennis, and Deathmatches. You might even check off some the weekend's special slate of Daily Objectives, with a different exclusive T-shirt for each day.

And if you just can't seem to finish that last objective and really need to blow off some steam in your Rhino Tank, Pegasus vehicle deliveries are free all weekend

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
